I've very recently gotten into original online TV content. I love how open it can be, unrestrained by Networks or ratings. One of the first that I got hooked on was Geek&Sundry's TableTop, starring Wil Wheaton.

This is an excellent, show where the premise is simple: Wil invites three friends to join him in playing a selection of interesting board games... and that's it! The results are funny, entertaining and a great way of getting an insight into how some of the best board games out there are played.

During a quiet Christmas break, I thought I'd create an illustration about the show. Now.. I'm not suggesting that Wil Wheaton is the Messiah (that's for history to decide), but his trademark opening pose together with the striking table just seemed too much to pass over.

Pictured in the illustration are just a few of the many guests that have been on the show (the table would have had to have been really long to fit them all in). Seating from left to right are:

Colin Ferguson, Riki Lindhome, Kate Micucci, Steve Jackson, Alison Haislip, Anne Wheaton, Wil Wheaton, Grant Imahara, Felicia Day (with Dr. Hannah), Bonnie Burton, Phil LaMarr, Beth Riesgraf and Bill Prady.

Hope you like it.

UPDATE:

A print of my picture (which I spoke to Geek&Sundry about them doing) featured in the Tabletop Day live stream event behind the celebrity players with Wil Wheaton. I followed as much as I could and I've put copies of twitter pictures and screen grabs at the bottom of this page - check them out (all images are copyright of their respective owners.) 

ADDITIONAL UPDATE:

I'm delighted that the artwork is now installed behind the Loser's Couch for series 2 of Tabletop! The producer of the show contacted me at the beginning of the year to say that it was the plan, and that there would be a season 2 - I had to keep quiet all this time!! But with episode 2 just posted, its really cool to see it on the screen. Here's a screen capture from episode 1:

    Not sure if that was an intended pun or not, but it made me laugh.

  11. Awesome! G&S needs to make this a poster and t-shirt, for sure. However, could you perhaps post the last image? Bill Prady seems to be left out from the big images, thanks! :)

  18. Okay, that is pretty great.

  19. Sorry for the late reply to some of these...

    Unknown re. Sean Plott - there were about 30 guests in total - I couldn't do them all!!

    Jon - thanks mate - glad you like it :)

    Prophotographic - wow! really cool photography dude! Love the look of it. And beautifully lit to emulate the old masters. Really cool!

    Mordicai - Thanks. I thinks so too, but then Im biased. :)

  20. Please make a poster and T-shirt out of this A.S.A.P. Trust me, you're sure to make some coin off nerds such as myself. You'll probably get a few religious nutjobs sending hatemail, but I'm betting you'll get far more people loving it (and again, paying you for the merchandise). Maybe with Jynx, as I believe Tabletop has t-shirts through them already.
